I've had one for 4 or 5 seasons and its still kicking, with the obligitory gasket replacement.
I bought it on closeout, and proceeded to put a big o' gash on one arm getting cozy with a rock while upside down. I e-mailed them (probably about 2003) about repair options. They replied: ship it to us, we'll fix it and ship it back. I was back in business in less than a month (during the summer season, no less).
I know they went outta business for a while, but I'm all for given the thumbs up, "'cause ya gotta have faith, bo-bo bo-bo"
